Travis Scott taking over Strip nightclub for F1 weekend

Travis Scott is taking a pit stop at Zouk Nightclub during the Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix.

The “Goosebumps” artist is playing the club Nov. 16, the first of several headlining artists to be announced at the venue.

Scott is among the star headliners at the club, joined by such top-line artists as deadmau5, DJ Snake, G-Eazy, Jack Harlow, Kaskade, Louis the Child, Ludacris, Tiësto and Zedd.

Ronn Nicolli, Resorts World’s chief marketing officer, has said of Scott, “From his music and fashion to unprecedented brand collaborations, Travis Scott is a one-of-a-kind, multitalented artist. His residency will bring a new level of energy to Resorts World Las Vegas and add to the property’s diverse list of entertainment and nightlife offerings.”

Scott has been moving effectively to reclaim his career after the tragic Astroworld music festival in Houston in November 2021.

The rap superstar was headlining the first of two nights of the event at NRG Park stadium when a crowd surge caused 10 deaths (eight on site and two others over the following days) and hundreds of injuries. About 50,000 fans attended the event, which canceled the second of two nights.

Scott used Vegas as a platform for his return to the stage. He performed at the Billboard Music Awards in May 2022 at MGM Grand Garden. Hosted by Sean “Puffy” Combs, the show marked Scott’s first performance since the Astroworld incident. He performed “Mafia” while appearing on a simulated chunk of ice, drawing a strong and positive response.
